Creature — Treefolk Shaman
Kinship - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top card of your library. If it shares a creature type with Leaf-Crowned Elder, you may reveal it. If you do, you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

Leaf-Crowned Elder Discussion

I have also change Cream of the Crop for Into the Wilds as I dont really need extra scry. Also, it's replacing well Leaf-Crowned Elder hability with more potential target (37 land vs less than 10 treefolk + shaman).

Basicly I have removed the slower Planeswalker, those with high mana cost and/or high ultimate and no very usefull +1. The reason is that I just can't never use it. Thats means no more Garruk, Caller of Beasts , and Nissa, Who Shakes the World . I have replace them with Horn of Greed and Early Harvest to get more momentum on card draw and mana ramp.
I also have switch Rishkar's Expertise in favor of Shamanic Revelation because I get stuck with Rishkar's Expertise too much time waiting for the a good time to cast that never came. Also, this deck almost never loose a game in my meta. Thats means that im the primary target before the game start. Since that, I need more way to gain life. It also combo well with another modification. Game are almost alway's win with Craterhoof Behemoth and this card is better with a lot of token than fiew big fat creature. This is why I had reintegrate Beacon of Creation and add Lys Alana Huntmaster . Lys benefit from the more elf of the last update (like Eladamri, Lord of Leaves ). I had cut in the treefolk branch to make those addon, swiping out Seedguide Ash who is very slow and Leaf-Crowned Elder who lack of target to be really efficient.
Other modification are Constant Mists for a better protection. Wirewood Hivemaster for more tokens. Genesis Wave to replace some Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and other planewalkers habilities to fetch card from the top of library. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Who can be use as bad ramp or to get rid of Maze of Ith or other "screw my day" land and Desert Twister as this the only one true removal in green (that I know).
To make room for the last 4 cards I don't remember witch other card than Tireless Tracker I have removed.
The goal was to get more synergy from land and creature type and also get more tokens as they are the main key to victory. By playing more and more this deck it's become obvious that the draw rate was never an issue with Nissa as commander, This is why I have cut in the more slow planewalker that do that kind of stuff in favor of more quickness and momentum.

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.
Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.
The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

I am very happy to see getting some new support in Modern Horizons! We FINALLY got full art Snow-Covered Mountain s!
So far admittedly nothing really seems like it will be any help in the Modern scene though... a simic snow treefolk is kinda neat... maybe in a Leaf-Crowned Elder treefolk tribal with all the different ways to switch toughness and power that has come about lately can be a functional use.
Is anyone else excited to see snow support/have any speculations?

I'm pretty sure that because you own both and they both trigger at the beginning of your upkeep that you choose which one goes first... the same thing would happen if you had Leaf-Crowned Elder in play.... just simply resolve one affect and then move on to the next and then move onto your draw step afterwards.... having something that allows you to play with the top card of your library revealed would make the choice a lot easier for which to do first

I never knew lorwyne/shadowmore were unpopular.... or ever thought there were problems...this makes me sad...
I always enjoy dusting off my Treefolk deck and abusing Leaf-Crowned Elder; always fun to play with....I loved the hybrid mana spells and the tribal gimmicks all went so well for EASY and fun deck building.... I use cards from these sets pretty often when I brew.
Sorry I have no suggestions to fix it cuz I loved it...
Raking Canopy against faeries is hilarious btw

My first deck was a really terrible treefolk tribal deck back in the days of Lorwyn and Morningtide. Unfortunately, I was mostly building with second hand cards at the time and tried to make due with Traproot Kami, Doran, the Siege Tower, and (I think) Wakestone Gargoyle. Eventually I figured out what I was doing and went full on with Bosk Banneret, Dauntless Dourbark, and Leaf-Crowned Elder; although, the process took over a year.

So this is one of my first attemps to make a deck.... And I love mushrooms and wanted to make a flavourful deck that had basically mushrooms, and their environment, trees and treefolk... To be played with friends but still as mighty s possible. But I am honestly struggling to fit everything in properly.... And no clue about which spells to choose! Any feedback is welcomed. So far I got something like this:
Verdeloth the Ancient Unstoppable Ash Orchard Warden Leaf-Crowned Elder Treefolk Harbinger Bosk Banneret Dountless Dourbark Timber Protector Ghoultree Indomitable Ancients Great Oak Guardian/ Cloudcrown Oak
Fungi I really wasnt sure here, not sure if mushrooms would be better represented in this deck by little ones that create saprolings and that is it, or if it is more convenient to keep the good ones in... so had those ideas so far. Also wanted to keep all as mushroomy as possible.
Mycologist x1 Essential for the theme I am aiming for, was thinking of 2 of these. Thallid Shell-Dweller x2 Benefits from using toughness to power up along with treefolk? Corpsejack Menace x3 Ghave, Guru of Spores x2 Mycoloth x2
Enchantments/Spells... The same for this, trying to keep it as mushroom foresty as possible. [pGrow from the Ashes]] is very tempting for this reason... but having other fedges.... Seed Spark ? Lignify ? Saproling Symbiosis ?? Reach of Branches ?? Rootgrapple ?? Fungal Sprouting Fungal Plots Luminiscent Rain Verdant Embrace Infect Pollenbright Wings Whirlwind Was thinking of adding something like Wrath of god or something to clean up the other's cards while having the [Timber Protector] ... Thoughts? And for more multiplayer Sheltering Ancient Heartwood Storyteller Collective Voyage ??
Well, please I would appreciate any feedback. Playing 60 cards, not much restriction... Also potenetially could make it into an EDH deck? But my pals do not really have those although we could probably get into that.
The budget is around 40 bucks...
Thanks in advance.
All the best.
